Two accounts associated with same domain

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

I have two accounts associated with same domain only difference is currency. Both have different currency approval. 

 

I was using account 1 (only) until now, but then I realised my geographical area is influencing by bidding decisions. So I wanted to change my ads to account 2. But before going there I wanted to confirm from Google adwords team if I can start using my account 2. I wrote mail to them, and have been trying to call from morning but am not able to get connected.

 

Appreciate all your help. Need to get my ads up and running as fast as I can.

Hi Smit,

 

I think you can not have two different accounts for the same domain (URL). Having two accounts for the same domain is a violation of the Google Ad Serving policy. You can not run two different accounts simultaneously.

 

Thanks!

In general; having two account targeting the same domain is a violation of the double serving section of the Policy

(There are some exceptions but I don't think they are relevant in your case.)

Thanks for the response Anand.

 

I figured that out some time back, and hence was operating my INR account which is account 1 in said discussion. Now that I want to change my ads it to account 2 which has $ currency, I am hesitating to create new ads at 2 as I do not want any of my accounts getting suspended due to policy violation. Until I copy my ads from account 1 to account2, I prefer not to close down account 1. I am fine with account 1 closing after I copy my ads over to account 2. 

 

FYI - even though both accounts are active, I have NOT run them simultaneously.

I'm not sure but if you run one account at a time (not both simultaneously) then I think you can run your campaigns.

I would suggest you to consult your query with Google AdWords Specialist also as they can confirm it firmly.

Thanks!

I appreciate everybody's help, but none of the reply has been helpful until now.

 

My question is can I start using my second account while still keeping my first account active (not using it bt still having until I recreate all my ads). 

 

I am clear about the double serving policy.

 

Help from Google adwords team member would be appreciated.

I got this resolved.

 

I can transfer all my ads (including content, settings and even trademark approvals) from account 1 to account 2 using adwords editor. hope this works.
